Majola heads to Labour Court

2012-10-15 09:12

Johannesburg - Suspended Cricket South Africa CEO Gerald Majola will on Monday turn to the Labour Court in Johannesburg to challenge his suspension and the establishment of the Nicholson Inquiry, according to EWN report.

Majola withdrew from his official CSA disciplinary inquiry last week saying it was unlawful.

He was suspended in March, after the Nicholson Inquiry found he contravened the Companies Act by failing to disclose bonuses he and his staff received.

The long running bonus scandal followed the 2009 Indian Premier League T20 tournament, which was hosted by South Africa.

Majola's lawyers confirmed last week that they would file papers in the Labour Court on Monday.

The respondents are expected to include CSA, Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula and the Nicholson Inquiry.

Majola believes the minister unlawfully intervened in the bonus saga, when the matter had already been closed by South Africa's Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc).

He argues that for this reason, the inquiry never should have been set up.

CSA is proceeding with Majola's disciplinary hearing in his absence, and the process is expected to be finalised this week.

    Seeing how this guy NOW acts and reacts I can say with utmost comfort that him not being at the helm of CSA makes me a very happy person. The aboslute arrogance this thief is displaying now proves that even when sponsors "evacuated" and board members resigned or got "fired" by his doing he would of kept on leeching of SACricket until it was driven right into the ground. This is the type of guy that one expects should be running as the next Limpopo premier THATS how corrupt he is.

    The South African Sports department wasted millions of tax payers hard earned money on unnecessary functions and entertinment, etc., +-R400 000 on lunch during the 2012 Summer Olympics. This is going to be interesting.

    This is fast becoming like the "Jub Jub" murder trial, excruciatingly painful. At least Majola's ill gotten gains will probably be devoured up in legal fees.

    Comrade Gerald Majola has every right to clear his name, if going to court is an available option, he must exhaust all avenues at his desposal.

      Why defend this SOB, did he share his profits with you? No, well then shutup.

    Wena Gerald you are full of yourself. After abusing CSA resources for own gain and you are not humble enough to let the law takes its course. That dog grave cut at your age says it all.

    everyone thinks they can get away with this type of stuff.. its time to start taking action against them and if they challenge they must cover the legal costs if they lose.

    Hope this arrogant SOB is not on full pay still. If he loses he should pay back every cent.
